Sure, I'll take a look and see what I can fix some time next week. Thanks for bringing this to light!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:50, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Alright, should be all taken care of now. I also completely delinked Image:Novgorod Oblast Flag.gif from everywhere and listed it for deletion. Thanks again.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 18:37, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Italian template[edit]

I have listed "Ossezia del Nord" in the template because I have seen that the English version of the template lists it among the autonomies. I think it is not wrong its location in the template, because Northern Ossetia is an autonomous republic within the Russian Federation: if you see, there are also other territories that are part of a state, but may have some difference from the national registration plate. (talk) 19:21, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok, maybe you are right. I will remove it from the template . (talk) 08:18, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Slavic auxlangs[edit]

Shalom, Mr. Hellerick! You will find my answer to your suggestion on my talk page. Best, —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 20:13, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Maya flag.svg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Maya flag.svg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 14:09, 19 December 2008 (UTC)


I see a lot of information in infobox are correct. If some of them are false, you can correct, but deleting of infobox is not good way. Infobox is usefull for readers. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 11:32, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps it was written by Russians. Yes, major part of Kazachstan belongs to Siberia, but it is enough. Can you actualize infobox? Perhaps the good way is to insert {{}} with "expert" - it could be better - inside and explain on the talk page what kind of information are not correct. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 12:40, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Silesia has specific regional character, and after encoming to EU differences between Silesia and rest of Poland grow up. Also other regions are more aware of its own specific character. Do you think I do not support membership in EU? I want even "euro" instead of "złoty". I support regionalization. It is better if article has infobox, but if it is impossible to update data of infobox... I suggest you are correct. Sorry for this event. With regards. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 13:21, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
In that case I am not sure. In publications of PWN I found: "SIberia is asiatic part of Russia". The same yoy can find here Britannica. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 15:01, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

New Grandan flags[edit]

According to the Spanish article the first flag was the one consisting of horizontal stripes, and the nested rectangles flag was the second. In this article the situation is opposite. Who's wrong? Hellerick (talk) 13:01, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Hellerick. The inconsistency was corrected by Shadowfox in the Spanish article on March 23. The article now describes the nestled-rectangles flag as the first and the horizontal tricolor as the second. Nevertheless, I double-checked and from the Flags of the World Colombia page I was able to trace their sources. Their links are dead now, but I found the new URLs and put them as references in the English-language article. It's interesting note that the first of these flags is shared by two entities, first the independent state of Cartagena and then provisionally by the United Provinces, which Cartagena joined and supported, but I'm assuming that Cartagena also continued to use it. I'm not sure what sources the Colombian Presidency site is using to get their dates, since they are slightly different from the Spanish-language article and from the ones recorded in the Flags of the World page.

Kievan Rus map[edit]

Hellerick! Leave the map of Kiev Rus' on the site because is the most correct till now. --SeikoEn (talk) 15:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Those map you put on are simply russian propaganda and you know it! False maps of Kiev Rus!--SeikoEn (talk) 16:40, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

If you try to take rusification of Kyiv Rus I will have to take revision of russian history on the site! Step away from Kyiv Rus because you know that is not today Russia! I will chack you! --SeikoEn (talk) 16:43, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Hey Arnold Charcters[edit]

Why did you undo my edit about Oscar? Emperor001 (talk) 04:41, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I can't remember the name, but it was the episode where Oskar (I know I misspelled it earlier) had to take care care of baby Oskar (or Oscar?). He knocked a woman down on the street, and the same woman said that she was knocked down by "a Czechoslovakian man." Granted she probably labeled him as such because of his accent and appearance. This is also why I said "implies", because she doesn't know him, and therefore couldn't make a totaly accurate rendering, but if the producer's statement confirms the woman's, we can change it from Eastern European to Czechoslovakian. Emperor001 (talk) 18:37, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


see here Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 15:43, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Somebody responded and added another offline-source. I'm still skeptical, but since I'm not an expert, you might want to keep an eye on it. I fully agree that sources are needed for the claim, and that the sources given are doubtful somehow. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 17:28, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Help on Chudinov[edit]

Hi! Thanks for the talk entry on Czech Wikipedia concerning Chudinov. May I ask you for help? I shall need some references concerning Chudinov's pseudo-linguistics. I'd be grateful for some published criticism etc. I need to cite some sources, you know. Many thanks for any help in advance! --Pet'usek [petrdothrubisatgmaildotcom] 18:44, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Native Russian speakers[edit]

Since native speakers are unable to provide reliable information on the phonetic particularities of vowels or consonants in their own language, sources are used to find out those sorts of details. If you'd like to discuss the issue of whether dental consonants are phonetically hard or soft before soft labial consonants, there's a related conversation already present at Wikipedia Talk:IPA for Russian with some unresolved issues that you can contribute to. — Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɛ̃ɾ̃ˡi] 21:29, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Double apostrophes on nap.wikipedia[edit]

Salve Hellerick, please take a look at this page (no worries, this link works ;-) It doesn't help us solve the problem if people pass by, complain and leave, never checking back. Somebody needs to tackle this issue - we can't! --Kazu89 ノート 18:01, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

RuLat transliteration[edit]

Of course, it is not official, but it is quite acceptable, so I turn it back to the Table. (talk) 15:55, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

There are tons of different Russian romanization systems, and at least a dozen were invented by me. But let's stick to the ones officially authorized by influential organizations. Hellerick (talk) 04:22, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Flag of Mari El[edit]

Did you get a chance to consider my edit summary in the edit preceding this one? Thanks,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); June 16, 2011; 18:40 (UTC)

Ah, I've just realized that you uploaded the new version over the old one. My browser, however, still shows the old cached version, making it look as if your version ends up with two nearly identical flags. Please disregard my request. Sorry about the confusion.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); June 16, 2011; 18:46 (UTC)

Reopening a discussion[edit]

I want to reopen the discussion Naming_conventions_(Cyrillic)#Example_convention regarding bibliographic references because I think Unicode changes the game somewhat. Since you have participated in the same talk page, I hope you will visit the discussion and give me your opinions. Thanks! LADave (talk) 23:22, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Please have a look at Stanislav Petrov and 1983 Incident[edit]

Hi, you commented on a discussion about splitting biographical data about the man involved from the article of the incident. I have been bold and made a cut at the changes required however I wanted to invite you to have a look at my edits on and Stanislav Petrov and 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident make any changes you think are required. Thanks! --Deadly∀ssassin 23:30, 20 August 2011 (UTC)


Hello, since you seem to be more active here, this is just a notice that I answered your question on the Hungarian Wikipedia. Regards, Oliv0 (talk) 06:27, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Earhart map[edit]

Thanks for the map. Did something happen with the Brazil coordinates? They look off. This is where she first crossed the equator, so perhaps you entered the latitude as North degrees, instead of South? Hoof Hearted (talk) 20:02, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to discuss on Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Cyrillic)[edit]

Hello! As there is already an only proposed Wikipedia guideline on naming conventions (Cyrillic). The proposal is still in development, under discussion and needs of gathering consensus for adoption. Since I am well experienced on this subject, I would like to criticize the official transliteration of Bulgarian as it gives too many errors, which also causes some losses of sounds “ǎ (a hacek”), decentralise itself from other slavic languages (“c” and “š” voices), which is also conflicting in itself (see street signs 1 and 2). By this revision, it is away from being accurate and not able to satisfy the needs of an encyclopedia which claims to be scientifical. These are the reasons I invite you to read Scientific transliteration of Cyrillic and involve the discussion in order to contribute a possible concensus. Wish to see you here thanks Manaviko (talk) 13:28, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
